A Dangerous Pool

Jimmy lives in the country, and he loves playing in a very shallow river near his house; but then his father gets a job in a big city, and he moves there with his family.

Their new house has a garden, but the garden is very small. Jimmy isn't very happy.

«Is there a river near here?» he asks his mother in the first morning. His mother answers, «No, there isn't, but there's a beautiful park near here, Jimmy, and there is a pool in it. We'll go there this afternoon.» Then Jimmy is happy.

After lunch, Jimmy and his mother go to the park. Jimmy wants to walk near the pool, but there is a sign in front of it. His mother reads it to him: «Warning: This pool is dangerous. 376 people have fallen into it.» Jimmy looks into the pool carefully. Then he says, «I can't see them.»
